Family Adventure Vacations in East Africa
The classic safari destination, Africa is home to savannah grasslands teeming with wild animals. The two main safari regions are East Africa (Tanzania and Kenya) and Southern Africa (South Africa, Namibia and Botswana).
Best for families with older children: Tanzania, Kenya
Best time of year: February (Tanzania wildebeest migration), September
Budget: Medium to high
Best to combine with: A visit to exotic Zanzibar for culture and the beach.
Important Note: Malaria prophylaxis is necessary when on safari in most regions. A major advantage for families with small children in South Africa is the availability of safaris in malaria – free regions.
